    1) Is it possible to authenticate as an Active Directory domain user via the ATI Echo command line in Linux when attempting to save to a remote share on a Windows server that is a member of the AD domain? For example, the following two commands work fine with a 'local' user account on the Windows server:

    trueimagecmd --harddisk:1 --filename:smb://server.domainname.local/share/name.tib --net_user:username --net_password:password --create --incremental

    --or--

    trueimagecmd --harddisk:1 --filename:smb://username:password@server.domainname.local/share/name.tib --create --incremental

    ...but how can you specify the AD domain like you can in the graphical mode? Such as:

    domainname\username password

    2) Are there any character limitations for passwords when issuing the trueimagecmd commands from the Linux shell?

    Thanks...

    Hello rahrenstorff,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Linux Server Disk Backup Software.

    Could you please clarify if the commands do not work in the format you specified?

    The only password length limitations are the ones used by operation systems involved.

    SOLVED: ATI Echo linux CLI authentication problem

    The correct command to authenticate as an Active Directory domain user via the ATI Echo command line in Linux when attempting to save to a remote share on a Windows server that is a member of the AD domain:

    trueimagecmd --harddisk:1 --filename:smb://domainname\\username:password@hostname.domainname.tld/sharename/filename --create --incremental

    1) domainname can be the netbios name or fqdn
    2) username:password can be an Active Directory user with write privileges to the sharename
    3) hostname.domainname.tld should be similar to the fqdn: server1.somedomain.local

    NOTE: this exact command is not documented in the Acronis manual.
